Looking for Beautiful

I am the kind of person who sees beauty in a pair of yoga pants, a wooden Mala and a book just delivered on my doorstep via the mail.

I see beauty in a feather tucked in a little vase.

Jars filled with nuts, seeds and dried fruit become artwork in my kitchen.

A pile of white stones is beauty for my spirit as I am reminded of walks on the beach and children laughing.

Beauty is my children with baskets of colorful crayons and markers transforming white papers into art gallery shows.

My beautiful is quiet, clean, calm and simple. It has texture and colors that mix together in just the right way for my eye.

A meal that is full of colors and flavors and that I want to eat again tomorrow is so beautiful.

Beauty is deciding that our world deserves that level of joy and trusting that we will find the path to it.

My beautiful is starting to show up now that I am looking for it, feeling it and living it.

What a blessing to be able to find beautiful, hold onto and nurture it.

This is one of my favorite things ever. For years I have made quesadillas and will put anything in them to get kids to eat! I used to put lentils and seaweed in Eli's when he was little. When I tell him he laughs and laughs! But these, if you like shrimp (please invest in wild and not farmed) are beyond amazing.

Wild Shrimp and Cilantro Quesadillas

1 package precooked, frozen, wild shrimp, thawed and chopped into bite size pieces
grated raw cheddar (this is my go to cheese, a nice raw high quality)
chopped fresh cilantro
corn tortillas

In a well oiled pan, place corn tortilla down and layer on shrimp and cheese and cilantro. You can put the avocado in or have it on top. Squeeze a little lemon on top and place the top corn tortilla on. Flip over after cheese starts to melt and tortilla starts to brown.

Top with avocado and salsa. Enjoy as you eat slowly and in bliss! And savor the beauty.
